The Children's Museum houses a secret—one of the finest ham radio stations in the south. Each Spring the Children's Museum of Acadiana will offer a Ham Radio program for anyone ages 10 – 80. The course will be held at the CMA in downtown Lafayette and will be taught by licensed amateur radio operators from the Acadiana Amateur Radio Association (AARA) and Ms. Terry Turner, Science Teacher from Paul Breaux.
